Yachting Developments — Vale Blanche Cook

Blanche was an integral member of the Yachting Developments family. Owner, mentor, mother-figure and friend, her larger-than-life presence pervaded the entire yard. Born and raised in Auckland, New Zealand, Blanche worked side by side with Ian to build Yachting Developments into an internationally respected and award-winning operation. She was heavily involved in New Zealand’s marine community, serving as Vice Chairperson of the NZ Marine export group, supporting the yard’s busy apprenticeship scheme and providing her support to a wide range of yachting causes, particularly the rescue and restoration of numerous classic yachts.
